This is where you talk Pre
This isn't a gadget blog, per se -- there are just billions and billions of them being served out there on the Internet every day. But it's fun to get Marylanders' take on the new Palm Pre, which may be the slickest piece of pocket plastic to debut since the
Blackberry Storm iPhone 3G.
I'm starting to hear from Baltimoreans/Marylanders about how they bought the Palm Pre over the weekend, and what they think of it. Since I haven't been able to get my palms on one, I'm really appreciating the reviews and commentaries I'm picking up from these proud new owners.
Adam Greivell (left, @esquiremac on Twitter), a Maryland criminal defense and civil litigation attorney, was one of the excited souls to run out and buy a Pre -- and he's written a thoughtful review of it on his blog, EsqMac (get it? Esquire and Mac.)
Adam writes in "Two days with my Palm Pre":
"The main factor that drove us to purchase the Pre was the price, however. It looked like the Pre was a good enough phone that the money we would save over going with the iPhone would be worth it - even if it ultimately didn’t turn out to be as good as the iPhone."
Adam leaves us with a bit of a cliffhanger. I'm interested to see what he thinks of the Pre in a few weeks.
If you're from Maryland and now own a Pre, leave us your initial impressions down there in the comments and/or a link to your blog with your review. Let's see what Maryland thinks of it.
